Removing Swollen Battery from JBL Flip 4

My Flip 4’s battery went kaput. I researched how to swap the battery, purchased a replacement and was doing great until I realized that the original battery has swelled to the point that I’ve not been able to remove it.

In trying to remove it, the wiring harness ripped off and a little fire started!

I have a certified JBL repair facility two blocks away, but was hoping to get this done myself.

What’s a safe way to remove a swollen battery from a Flip 4?

Push it instead of pulling it. you can do that by accessing the bottom of the battery behind the charging port. remove charging port first and then you are free to push it.. i pushed it using the short edge of an allen wrench. Just avoid puncturing it while pushing.

Yok Yok! You sir, are a GENIUS! Many thanks for the advice on removing the charging port. Last week when I opened it up I couldn't see the battery from that angle because of the charging port. Now I just need to get the replacement battery...

I was ready to throw out, couldn't see the bottom end bc of charging port. And was getting fire sparks when using tools from top down. Used the rubber coated handle of a wrench to slowly push it out from the bottom as far as could go, and then had enough to latch on with hand and wiggle rest out. Just saved $60 in buying a new one, compared to the cost of a new battery.

bought replacement battery but the removal of bloated battery stuck inside, original battery stuck after cables got ripped out.

carefully read YOK YOK (THANKS !!!) managed to carefully dislodge the charging casement cover and cables, use a test pen to gently pushed the battery out, the base of battery looked like its part of battery enclosure but it not, some flat white wiring visible so push with care. Thanks Again YY!

Kyle Petrozza  the worst “the wiring harness ripped off and a little fire started” is over. Use a small spudger or hook and try to remove the rest of the battery. After that discard the battery properly depending on your state/county etc.

There is still a chance of flare up though, correct? If the metal end of a spudger or needle-nose pliers gets into the guts of the battery, it'll react, no?

Kyle Petrozza I'd be more concert with humidity than a metal tool. Lithium can react violently with water. Use some common sense and you'll be fine. No explosion, no swelling since it is already punctured

I used the largest bit I had that fit into my iFixit Driver. For me, it was the 5.5mm nut driver.

Guys, might be dump, but, if the battery is not punctured, there's no problem, right? I pulled off the cable that connects it to the motherboard. The max. I did was apply pressure on it a bit because i wanted to lift up the “case” in which it is in

I used rubber coated handle of wrench. Try to use something sturdy that is plastic or rubber and “not sharp” at the point of pressure. May need alot of strength in pressure to push out.
